Abstract

This research focuses on the changing ceramic production centers along coastal Florida during the pre-Contact (AD 800 – 1600) Contact Period (post- AD 1600). This thesis tests how ceramic production changed as a result of European arrival at three sites; San Juan del Puerto, Nombre de Dios, and Fountain of Youth. Focusing on sites in northeastern Florida, this thesis uses compositional analysis to examine the impact of sociopolitical change during the Contact Period on ceramic production.
